Fire in the hole!!!!!!!! Way to go, Murph.

LOL, yes Les. The ammo crates are all empty. They are free and make great shop furniture. I have 10 or 12 105 Howitzer crates stacked up in the shop as well. I'm trying to decide what to do with them. I really need to build a work bench. I guess when I get my buffer I'll have to build one so that I have a place to put it.

Congrats on the new pet.
That looks like some serious heat!

That looks great how many lbs presser are you running, is that one of the Modified Side Arm Burner's made by Larry Zoeller.

If you go to home depot and buy a door you can put it on top of two or three stacks of boxes it makes a great work bench or desk. Get some 2x4’s and put one on both sides of the crates that will help keep them together. You can use deck screws to attach them.

When I went to the shop last night it had just finished raining and the temperature had droped down in the low 70s. Once I fired up the forge for its test run, it only took about ten minutes before I was soaking wet with sweat. That thing gets hot quick and really bellows it out.

The gentleman who built the forge for me (Ken Nicholson) used the same burner as is used in the Chile Forge and it has a ceramic floor with Kao Wool and refractory insulation. I'm still working out the pressure issue. I'll let you know when I figure it out.

Nice forge, Murph! I gotta think that it's a lot more fun to fire that baby up in the winter, though. ;)

NICE! :) Congrats

Very nice, I agree with BOSS need a video.

Your pet Dragon will now start to consume all your spare time. When you leave home you won't be able to stand it till you get back home. Also have it neutered or it will want to multiply. Good looking forge by the way.
